“Mata ni Siga”, in English meaning “Eyes of the Sun”, is nestled within Taveuni Estates on Taveuni island
This well-kept and well-maintained property has a secluded feel thanks to open grounds with good boundaries, the property itself lying below the level of the road. Between the road and the building are additional trees, bushes and tropical plants creating additional privacy and reducing the noise of the passing traffic, which is relatively light. Views from the gardens and the upper deck, as with most properties on the estate, are across the Somosomo Strait towards Vanua Levu. On a clear day the owner is treated to beautiful hues of blue and white as waves break across the Rainbow Reef plus lush tropical greens and yellows of the surrounding forest with a exotic plants, bushes and flowers around the grounds for additional splashes of colour.
The house itself is a solidly constructed timber home on a concrete base. The lower level is presently used as storage and caretaker quarters. The current owners usually visit for a few months each year with live-in caretakers minding and maintaining the property during periods of absence. A new owner can do likewise if using the property as vacation getaway, or re-purpose the space if buying a permanent residence. Possibilities include workshop, studio, or additional guest accommodation. Since the upper deck wraps around the whole property the lower-level exterior space also provides sheltered parking for vehicles, socialising, general storage, utilities and laundry lines.
The upper level is the owners primary living area. This is an open plan space with kitchen, lounge, and bedroom with adjacent bathroom. A second bedroom with en suite is situated behind the kitchen.
A natural timber feel is present throughout, including solid wood louvres offering wrap around views and ventilation during hot weather plus protection from rain and strong winds. The wide deck and overhanging roof give additional shade and shelter at peak sun so the house itself remains cool, and one can still sit comfortably for afternoon cocktails on the deck in all weathers.
The property is ideal for a couple with or without children, or a couple with visiting guests, and the lower-level space offers additional possibilities for larger families or projects if repurposed.
The property is offered as a turnkey purchase with all contents included.
